On average girls, how many eyeshadows would you use to create an eye look? Usually i use 3 (brow, lid & crease colours) but some of your FOTD's are fantastic & ye use so many!

Usually about four: one for the base shade, one for the lid, one for the crease and one for lining. The minimum would be two: one for the allover wash and one for the lid/crease area.

For everyday, I'd say 1-2 shades. That'd be a lid color, and maybe a crease color. If I actually take my time, I'd say anywhere from 3-6 shades, for lid, crease, outer "V", browbone, inner eye highlight, and liner.

I use anwhere from 1 to 10 colors depending upon my mood and the look I'm trying to create. I usually only use one or two colors though.

Usually about 3 :

1 all over from lash to brow

1 in the crease

1 to line

I do sometimes wear more or less depending on my mood.

Daily I usually use 3. But on weekends (cuz I have more time to do my face) or when I want to look extremely FABULOUS... I'll use about 5 or 6 depending on the look I'm going for.

I´ve seen pics of fabulous eye makeups where there are like 5 shades of the same color and it looks so well blended. however, if I try to wear more than 2 or 3 colors it always ends up looking "dirty" and messy. dunno what I´m doing wrong
